Technical Producer, Mobile Platforms

| Bellevue

Unity Technologies, supporting 25+ platforms, is a global leader in real-time 3D technology; we are at the cutting edge of technology across hardware platforms around the world. As such, we are uniquely positioned to have access and knowledge of current and future tech, building an engine to truly enable success for millions of creators.

We’re looking for a highly skilled and self-motivated Technical Producer to facilitate operations and communications for our globally-distributed Mobile Platforms team. In this role, you will work cross-functionally with engineering, product management, and other stakeholders, supporting the team in their internal processes and opening doors to collaboration with the rest of the company. You will report to the Lead Technical Producer, Platforms, within the R&D organization.

The Mobile Platforms team is spread across multiple locations, primarily Bellevue and Vilnius. Due to the distributed nature of the team, some international travel is to be expected.

You are comfortable wearing multiple hats: coach, reporter, translator, and firefighter. You ride the line between Helper and Leader, acting as a force multiplier for the teams you are embedded with. You have a light-touch project management style, and a commitment to fostering a culture of individual empowerment, ownership, and trust. Your communication skills are impeccable, and you have an understanding of and appreciation for working across different cultures.

Responsibilities

  • Ensure partners and in-house teams work together fluently, embracing divergent processes and cultures
  • Use fluency in common software production methodologies and deep empathy for developers to improve the team’s ability to plan and deliver software without hampering progress or autonomy of developers
  • Coordinate with mobile team leadership and product management to build and maintain a clear roadmap of both internal and external mobile projects
  • Facilitate collaboration with other engineering teams to achieve Unity’s larger strategic goals and maintain a high-quality standard on mobile platforms
  • Circulate regular status updates to stakeholders, providing a concise high-level view into the team’s health and progress against goals
  • Work closely with R&D support teams such as Release Management, Core Developer Services, etc. to help address problems of scale as Unity R&D continues to grow

Requirements

  • Experience in software production/project management, working cross-functionally within an engineering organization
  • Knowledge of multiple project management methodologies, including agile and waterfall - as well as an understanding of the shortcomings of each
  • Literacy with multiple issue-tracking systems - JIRA, FogBugz, Favro, Trello, etc.
  • Ability to gracefully manage change in an organization, working with the current of embedded habits rather than fighting against it
  • Experience working on enterprise-scale software
  • Demonstrate a proactive, curious mindset. Be willing to ask questions, and be willing to dig for your own answers as well

Bonus points

  • Experience working with distributed teams across time zones
  • Experience in Mobile software development
  • Experience in Game development (Unity engine or otherwise)
  • Outstanding communication skills, both written and oral, to speak to a broad variety of stakeholders, internal and external

An Insider's view of Unity Technologies

What are some social events your company does?

I think everybody loves the annual holiday party, and this past summer we had a company picnic that was a huge hit. My team is developing a robust events program of not only regular social functions, but also events that encourage wellness and community involvement! One of my personal favorites is the office yoga.

Casey

Workplace Experience

What projects are you most excited about?

Recently my team was awarded a Technical Emmy for our work on 3 film shorts called Baymax Dreams, which was a huge accomplishment. Right now, I'm excited to be working on XR products for the film and entertainment industry that will come to life soon.

Sarah

Producer, Made with Unity

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since joining Unity, the freedom and independence offered here has helped me grow tremendously. I’ve been able to work on the technologies that interest me, and work with those that have a lot of knowledge and background in the field.

Tom

XR Developer

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

One significant challenge we face is working with multiple web frameworks within the same website. Being a product of geographical separation as well as multiple acquisitions, our dashboard isn't as integrated as we would like. We work to maintain a balance between rewriting code and ensuring that we continue to deliver a high quality experience.
